Former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger’s “punishment” for abusing his security clearance, then stealing classified documents about Clinton administration failures to deal with terrorism: loss of his security clearance for three years, a $10,000 fine, and no prison time. Imagine the media outcry if Condi Rice, a Republican who served in the same position, had committed this kind of crime. Keep in mind that Martha Stewart got five months in prison for lying about a crime she was never charged with. Apparently it’s more important to make an example of a celebrity over an inconsequential infraction than it is to protect our national security in a time of war.
